The Book of Revelation
The Greek of the book is uncouth. The imagery is deranged. The ethical system, in so far as it has one, is irrational. It seems as far from the spirit of Jesus as it is possible to be, and yet it provides the conclusion of the Christian Bible.I noted a misprint on p. 18 of Wilson's book, second line from the top—for "Christians have been signing hymns" read "Christians have been singing hymns."
